Since 2009 TopBraid Ensemble™ has been providing our customers with the quickest route from an ontology and RDF data
to a working web application using pre-built model-driven Rich Internet Application (RIA) components implemented with Adobe Flex. With the advent of HTML5,
Starting with 4.0 release of TopBraid, Flex support has been deprecated. Rapid development of HTML5-based applications
is supported with TopBraid SPARQL Web Pages (SWP) technology.
This support includes a component-based application builder, named SWP Applications Library (SWA).
Packaged pre-built SWA components include trees, grids, search, and browse forms.
Development of drag and drop assembly user interface components to build applications is underway, and will be supported by integration with
OpenSocial - an industry standard framework for assembling web applications. TopBraid users will be able
to configure sophisticated interactive applications to run with enterprise portals servers, such as Liferay, that support OpenSocial. This open, standards-based approach
makes it possible to create applications that combine TopBraid-powered components with third party components.
Flex implementation of TopBraid Ensemble™ continues to be available in TopBraid Composer 3.6, which can be downloaded
here and in TopBraid Live 3.6. Supporting documentation for 3.6 releases is
TopQuadrant will support TopBraid Ensemble
and the associated TopBraid SDK, for light maintenance until the end of 2013. For longer maintenance contracts,
